Abstract
    Gnosonesima mediterranea sp. n. from algae in the Bay of Calvi (Corsica) is described. It is the first record of a Gnosonesima-species from the Mediterranean. The pharynx and the genital organs are extensively described at the light microscopic level from 1 µm Epon sections. The male "accessory organ" is revealed to be an andro-genito-intestinal connection with a high similarity with the female genito-intestinal connection. The taxonomic position of the Lecithoepitheliata is discussed.
